Fire + Earth includes over 350 pieces of ceramic art by 57 Canadian
artists. You can explore these pieces by selecting an artist above,
or through the Index of Works which
provides a visual preview of a selected artists work or a straightforward
list of all the pieces in the exhibition.
A selection of the original works from Fire + Earth has been presented
in QuicktimeVR, which allows you to examine a piece from any angle.
The virtual exhibition also includes biographies, exhibition history,
and additional works by the original artists.
In About Fire + Earth
you can view photographs of the exhibition as it was installed in a
variety of galleries. Jonathan Smith and Shinjin Ozaki, the co-curators,
offer their thoughts on how they selected the original exhibition of
61 pieces. A PDF catalogue is also available for browsing off-line.
+ Materials provides newcomers to ceramic art the chance to learn
more about how ceramics are made. Videos and images are used to further
explain many of the techniques involved.
